If you have symptoms of COVID-19, please take a rapid antigen test. If your test is negative and you do not have a fever*, you may return to campus while wearing a well-fitting mask. If your symptoms persist, you should plan to take additional rapid antigen tests at least twice over the next three days if your tests are negative.

(*If you have a fever, you will need to stay home until you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours.)

Students with symptoms may contact Health Services at 216.368.2450 for PCR testing, additional guidance and/or medical care. Please note that Health Services is closed for appointments during evenings and weekends. Students can call during those times to speak with the nurse on-call or seek care through TimelyCare.

Faculty and staff with symptoms may contact Health Services during clinic hours for PCR testing (216.368.2450) and return-to-work guidance. They should contact their primary care provider for medical care.

Rapid Antigen Testing

If your rapid antigen test is positive, you will need to isolate per CWRU guidelines. Please submit your positive rapid test through myhealthconnect.case.edu, and you will be contacted via secure messaging with further guidance.

Have you been exposed to someone with COVID-19?

Wear a mask and monitor for symptoms for at least 10 days after your exposure.

Get tested five days after your exposure. However, health science students should get tested immediately (if possible) AND again at day 5.

Are you traveling?

Due to the federal requirements for acceptable COVID-19 tests, we are unable to offer testing for international travel.

COVID testing is available at local pharmacies, as well as at many airports, including Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, for a fee.
